Ohio: “Castle Doctrine” Legislation up for a Possible Vote!

Friday, May 16, 2008

Please Contact Committee Members Today!

Senate Bill 184, Ohio’s “Castle Doctrine” legislation, has been scheduled for a possible vote in the House Criminal Justice Committee.  This vote could take place as early as next week.  SB 184, sponsored by State Senator Steve Buehrer (R-1), would help restore the fundamental right of self-defense.  This legislation would restore the right of individuals to respond with force in defense of their lives and family, and immunize the victim from civil lawsuits by criminals or the criminal’s family. 

Also up for a possible vote will be an amendment to SB 184.  This amendment contains language, which would not only prohibit firearm confiscation during a state of emergency, but would also make critical changes to Ohio’s conceal carry statute.  

Please contact the members of the House Criminal Justice Committee TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support this pro-gun package.
